Censorship[]

  • The opening with the glue-huffing was removed by MTV, as well as Butt-Head's Asian Happy Boy impersonation, Butt-Head asking a woman if she'd like to sniff some glue, the use of the trademarked name "Hyundai", and several fans giving Van Driessen the finger.
  • The phone number displayed in the TV commercial was removed in the Liquid Television version, as was Sterculius's line "I am Sterculius, god of feces". These were restored in the series version.

Trivia[]

  • The infomercial in the opening scene was a parody of "Tom Vu's Secrets of Success".
  • This is the last Beavis and Butt-Head episode to be animated using cel-painted animation, until it was re-used later on from the Season 3 episode Comedians.
  • Despite Mr. Van Driessen being killed by the monster truck, he still appears in future episodes.
  • This is the first appearance of Mr. Van Driessen.
  • Mike Judge himself despises this episode's animation, alongside with Door-To-Door and Give Blood. He described it as "awful, I don't know why anybody liked it... I was burying my head in the sand."[3]
  • The uncensored version of this short was made available on VHS under the title Spike & Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation, Volume 1.

Goofs[]

  • The color of Beavis's shorts changes from gray to red as he begins singing the heavy metal riff. This goof also appeared in Frog Baseball.
